"The whole of England must be searching for me
Well, sooner or later, they're going to find me
Never
Because, you see they're looking for you, alright
But nobody's looking for me"

International rock star
That would make the day go down easy
Crucified in my sports car
I've got high hopes that things end famously

And then there's love
To keep keeping you down
You find release
In the big time

International rock star
That would make the pain go away
The last one standing at the bar
Is the dream that'll have to do for today

And then there's love
To keep keeping you down
You find some peace
In the big time

Until then
Until then
Until then
I'll keep you
Locked up tight
In my collection

"How long are you going to keep me here?
I don't know
It depends
On what? On my falling in love with you?
If that's what you think, I'll be here 'til I die
Now go away
Go away
Take it over"

    General CommentI believe the spoken part is from a 1965 movie called "The Collector". The last verse (until then/I'll keep you/locked up tight/in my collection) is probably inspired by that too.
